Azerbaijan Through the Lens | Hg2 PREVIEWS

Over the autumn, our friends at the The European Azerbaijan Society (TEAS) ran a photo competition called ‘Azerbaijan Through the Lens’. They asked professional and amateur photographers to submit their snaps of Azerbaijan for a chance to win some lovely prize money and the chance to have their work exhibited in several spaces across Europe.

After a lot of deliberation over the wonderful submissions, which ranged from urban photos of Baku to stunning shots of the Azerbaijani countryside, a panel of experts has whittled the list down and chosen the winners. These will be announced at the official ‘Azerbaijan Through the Lens’ exhibition opening 7:30pm, November 20th (tomorrow) at La Galleria Pall Mall in London. ‘Azerbaijan Through the Lens’ runs from November 20th – 1st December 2012.

The folks at TEAS have generously offered Hg2 an exclusive preview of the some of the submissions, which we are excited to share with you here (presented in no particular order).

    There are too many wonderful photographs here to pick out just one to be the very best. Beautiful works which shows there are a lot of talented people out there.

    The picture with the exquisite detailing of the door handle was really good as most people will just easily miss it followed with the group of old men, both in black and white yet so eloquent.
